Hieron Vying for No. 1 Contendership
However, like almost every well-laid plan in MMA, unforeseen circumstances and the choices that come out of them take promotions and fighters down other paths. When Hieron’s management turned down a fight with Lithuanian newcomer Marius Zaromskis for January, Diaz was given the bout instead. And with Diaz seen as a top 170-pound contender in the promotion, the bout was allotted for the promotion’s first-ever welterweight title.

Vitor Belfort: Anderson Silva seemed 'upset or nervous' at UFC 112 pre-fight face off
"I don’t know what happened, he seemed upset or nervous, I don’t know. We were face to face, but we didn’t greet each other. Some people like to stare down, but when the fight is on it doesn’t matter who can hold the stare the longest. I won the heavyweight tournament and the light heavyweight championship, and I want to be called a UFC champion again. Anderson is really dangerous and has all these weapons, but I have a good chance, and I’m working on a strategy to beat him."

Share UFC Quick Quote: Tito Ortiz is 'full of ****'
"No, it's not true at all. He's full of ****. Let me tell you what Chuck told me. He's gonna break his head open! Yeah, he's pissed." -- WEC General Manager Reed Harris kept it short and not-so-sweet when Dave Farra asked him on X107.5 Las Vegas if there was any truth to the allegations made by Tito Ortiz that Chuck Liddell is a recovering alcoholic. Ortiz claimed that Liddell was in deep trouble with the disease of alcoholism, until Dana White saved the most dominant light heavyweight champion in recent history through an intervention. No surprise here.
Nick Diaz: 'I could beat both GSP and Anderson Silva'
You know how people used to think Albert Einstein was a crazy dude, but then long after he died we realized he was a genius? Well, maybe that's what we have in Nick Diaz. A man respected for his craft, yet someone who doesn't seem to fully understand his surroundings. A man, who despite possessing the ability to be great at what he does, consistently makes decisions that for all intents and purposes harm his very well being. Sure, some of what he says and does makes very little to sense to us. But is that because Mr. Diaz is well ahead of his time? I'd like to see it.

Lil' Nog Is A "Horrible Fight" For Forrest Griffin
At least Forrest Griffin thinks so. "That is a horrible fight for me. I have trained with his brother a little bit, so he already has the 'inside scoop' on me, he's a southpaw, has got a good chin, and has good power. Plus he is pretty solid on the ground. The only place I would have an advantage would be wrestling... and my wrestling is not that good. So yeah, that’s a tough match up for me. I'd do it, if that’s what they wanted, but being straight up, there are other guys I'd rather fight."
Herschel Walker: I'm not going to be heavyweight champ -- but I am going to be competitive
I love martial arts. I've loved it for years. I love the sport of it. When I saw MMA years ago, I fell in love with it. They've cleaned it up so much that it is now a mainstream sport, and I wanted to get involved in it. There are incredible athletes doing it, and I want to consider myself a good athlete, and that's the reason I want to do it. I'm not stepping into this sport, fighting for a belt, `Oh, I want to be heavyweight champion.' No. At the age I'm at right now, I'm getting into a sport that I consider one of the toughest sports out there, and I'm going to be competitive.

If you put that together, it will not go to the fifth round at all,” Coenen told the media about her upcoming title fight.
Rogerio vs. Machida Isn't Out Of The Question
"(Rogerio) wants what every other light heavyweight wants in that category and that's he wants a belt,” said Ed Soares. “Whatever fight is going to be, put him up a little bit closer towards that title shot, that's where he wants to be, that's who he wants to fight."
